    Hi! I just discovered live streaming last spring and absolutely love it! Can't wait for this year's storms! That being said I understand where a lot of you guys are coming from. Costs, demanding viewers, etc. So I get it. But for all those out there that still participate in it, I just wanted to say thank you so much! Someday maybe I'll learn enough to be able to safely chase myself, but until then you guys have no idea just how much this lady enjoys being able to see these fascinating storms from the safety of her living room. You guys stay safe out there!

    I have to agree with Dean Berry. I've talked to two different outfits about live streaming and both were less than helpful. Fortunately, my tv station bought TVU backpacks for us to live stream. I cover a large urbanized region between Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Buffalo, so I'm not dealing with rural areas like Kansas...but I've never lost a feed. I don't have to worry about getting a return on my investment cause I'm on the payroll. The few live streams we've done on facebook were a major PIA tho. The viewers were as described....critical, know-it-alls and demanding. So I ignore them. If one of the on-air Mets want to jump into the conversation and talk to the watchers, that up to them, but I'm busy driving.
